    The Crimson Petal and the White, by Michel Faber.

    I've read a couple of his short stories and thought them clever and entertaining, but this novel is a slight disappointment; I think he misjudges the tone a lot, allows certain characters to retreat into two-dimensionality, and a spattering of metaphors seem really laboured. He good on London street life though.

    Tonight, I finished Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk. Tomorrow, I shall start either Lullaby, or Invisible Monsters.
    go for invisible monsters it's in my opinion the best Chuck Palahniuk book by far!!!

    I found a copy of Jane Eyre round my nan's and thought I'd look at it. It's SUCH a good story!
    Thank god for that - i was worried it would be awful and as its compulsory to read that for my course i would be bored as.

    Great expectations is what im reading at the mo - for the second time...

    I'm currently reading Dracula by Bram Stoker. I haven't read many books in its genre, but it's of an era that I like, generally speaking, and it seems to be quite good so far

    Just read Dorian: An Imitation by Will Self.
    Now I'm rereading the original Picture of Dorian Gray by one O. Wilde.

    Self's was witty, disturbing, very funny, and very dark. Recomended.
